Insulation of plumbing walls
I 'm doing a major remodel to a 1975 house. As usual, I only cut holes in the sheetrock where I needed them but as the project went on I ended up with several large (8' by 8') and many smaller holes. Eventually I wished I had removed a lot more sheetrock at the beginning. Be that as it may, now I have to insulate all those areas. The existing insulation is foil-faced R-11 poorly installed and the rim joists have no insulation at all.
What are my options to insulate the areas I hav access to? Some of them have so much plumbing and electric that it is almost impossible to insulate around them but the foam or cellulos may be too expensive in a limited area. What do you think?
I have attached a picture of one of the worst walls.
